Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has boasted about renewing ties with his old pal Vladimir Putin – and exchanging gifts including vodka, wine and “sweet” letters.

The veteran politician, who has a long-standing friendship with Russia’s leader, made the remarks during a meeting of his centre-right Forza Italia MPs.

“I reconnected with President Putin,” Mr Berlusconi said in a clip provided to the LaPresse news agency.

“He sent me 20 bottles of vodka and a really sweet letter. I responded with 20 bottles of Lambrusco and a similarly sweet letter.ā€

It happened on Mr Berlusconi’s 86th birthday on September 29, after the far right won the majority of votes in Italy’s elections.

His explosive comments made the front pages as Mr Berlusconi was poised to join a coalition government.
